Unlike many writers who have known all their lives they wanted to write, I did not discover my passion for writing until I was a grandmother. In addition, writing for children was not my first choice.
As an adult college student, my writing skills were developed and honed. Soon, my classmates wanted me to edit and help write their essays. This built my confidence as a writer, editor and wordsmith. As I look back this was all in preparation for what was to come.
I began writing a monthly column for the regional news paper and after a couple of years decided it would be nice to earn some money for my writing. So, I began researching how to find a job as a writer. About this time I came across Suzanne Lieurance’s website. Signing up for Suzanne Lieurance’s writing course was the best decision I made. Suzanne is the director of the Children's Writers Coaching Club and numerous other writing services. www.workingwriterscoach.com
Through numerous classes with Suzanne and her professional staff of writing instructors, I learned how to craft various types of children’s stories and writing techniques. But most of all I received encouragement and developed camaraderie with other writers.
In addition I learned about the business of writing and what publishers and editors look for. I also learned a variety of ways to market my skills through blogging and social networking.
My writing service Carma’s Word, offers help when you need a ghost writer or proof reading and editing for your novel. In addition, I can help with developing blog content, creating newsletters and article writing.
My children’s writing blog Carma’s Window, provides information and tips on a variety of writing and information from well known authors. In addition, I conduct interviews with established children’s authors and write book reviews.
My newest venture is a new blog titled “The Lord Willin’” I will be writing on a variety of spiritual issues and inspirational topics. Today’s world is hungry for comfort and love. Using relevant biblical teachings, my hope is to encourage, inform, inspire and comfort those in need, Lord Willin’. .
